Chef Sam Freund

CHEF SAM FREUND

Chef Sam Freund is not only a chef, but also a culinary artist deeply passionate about creating experiences for his guests that will leave palates wanting more. Freund’s commitment to local purveyors, comes from his childhood roots of growing up in a small New Jersey farm town, where his family owned a restaurant. He spent many summers in the kitchen learning about hospitality, and how food has the power to bring people together, ultimately inspiring Freund to pursue a career in Culinary.

His career began in New York City at Danny Meyer’s One Hudson Catering and Eleven Madison Park under Chef Kerry Hefferman, before achieving Executive Chef at One If By Land, Two If By Sea for 4 years. He decided to leave the east coast to explore new possibilities and hone his artisanal talents. Freund landed in Denver, and met Troy Guard, (of TAG), where he expanded into Asian Fusion and connected with the rustic flavors of the Pacific Northwest. Under Guard, he executed the opening of TAG Raw Bar and TAG Burger Bar, both receiving acclaim to be top restaurants in Denver. Freund has worked under critically acclaimed Chef Craig Hopson and his accolades include: Beer and Bacon Festival Winner (Denver); James Beard Outstanding Contribution Award (NY); Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

In 2013, Freund returned to Jersey at The Café & Wine Bar in Long Valley, creating seasonal tapas menus and monthly wine dinners. He went on to open Slamwich Scratch Kitchen in Madison, NJ, a concept of what a real delicatessen should be where everything is homemade, from the cured pastrami to the house bread and pickles. Slamwich has been named New Jersey Food Critics Choice for lunch in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. White Birch has been featured as a New Jersey Top 30 Best Restaurants, 2019, 2020, and 2021, and continuously receives editorial recognition. Most recently, Freund embarked on transforming the historic Oldwick General Store, located in Tewksbury, NJ. With an in-house pastry program, where the bread and croissants are baked fresh daily, his commitment to––housemade everything––shows up on every plate.

Chef Sam Freund is looking forward to having you as his guest at White Birch.

Freund is French trained and holds a culinary degree from the New York Art Institute.
